What information does Melbourne Meditation Centre (MMC) collect from our users and how do we collect it?
MMC only contacts and collects information from individuals who specifically request that we do so. That is, those who have either:
- signed up to receive our free newsletter
- registered to attend a course or workshop, or
- ordered products through our website.
The collection of personally identifying information only occurs during online registration and purchasing. Generally, this information includes name and e-mail address for registration to receive our free newsletters and name, postal address, and credit card information when purchasing products or services. All of this information is provided to us by you.
How do we use this information?
This information is used for internal administrative and marketing purposes only. MMC does not sell, exchange, or release your personal information (name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit data, etc.) Your information is not shared with any other third party or company outside of billing and shipping purposes.
We will only use personal information provided by you for the purposes for which it was collected. We will not disclose your personal information to a third party. We ensure that your personal information will not be disclosed to other State institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation.
